Young hunters competition


We have another competition for all the young hunters aged 16 or under to take part in, with the chance to win a fantastic book ( Trap Making Step by Step) kindly donated by John b . We would like to hear all about your hunting experiences be it snaring, ferreting, fishing, shooting, lamping, trapping etc. The young hunter doesn’t have to be a member of the hunting life as long as one of their parents is. But it has got to be in the young hunters own words (don’t worry about spelling or punctuation just no text talk please) all entries to be posted by 30th September.

John b and myself will judge the entries and will award the prize to the story we like the best. Please pm your story's to me T/G

Good Luck to you all.

As soon as i started to set the snares that i bought (once i was taught) i caught a fair few from there in. The first time i set them, i spent about half an hour setting ten! I set the snares at about 11 am, the next day i went down at 9 am and had nothing except a few snares knocked, i was so annoyed! I reset them, but i set them and the tealers little higher, i went down the next day and i had 8 rabbits in the snares! I was so happy! I skinned them and gutted them and restet the snares, I went down the next day and had nothing, not even a snare knocked! So i went down again the next day and still had none! I then restet them and after i restet them i spoke to one of the allotment holders and spoke to them about snaring, they told me that they have seen another person from the allotments taking the rabbits out of the snares and resetting them, but she said she had never thought anything of it!
In the end, i took the snares up and started shooting and feretting on there, now i can't stop! I love going down there to shoot a few rabbits, or ferret a few. But sometimes i go up there with my gun and see nothing! But normally when i go up without a gun there's loads of rabbits out!

Thanks' Trace,
Alex

well i decided to go carp fishing about 2 month ago & stay over night with some freinds. so off we went with the tents ect. we got there and set our rods up and started fishing. the first fish was mine a loverly 8lb mirror carp.... that set the night off well.. so i thaught. it started raining reilly heaverly during the night so that drove us to our tents.... before i knew it i fell asleep at about 3 in the morning ohmy.gif silly me only forgot to put the pegs in the ground, i must of moved through the night alot... and pushed the tent into the pond with me in it icon_redface.gif as we had set the tents up close to the pond side. woke up in the morning and thaught i was on a water bed... well acually i was blink.gif right in the middle of the pond freezing cold i had to paddle my way back to the side it was quite funny for my freinds but not so funny for mee.

a story i will never forget haha.

my first day ferreting was in september 2008. we had left the house at 11.00am with us we had 1 ferret (spot) and the dog (tye). we had got to the permission which was a small field with about 20 sets. we got to one of the sets and the dog marked it. we netted it up and the ferret went in. the dog was standing by to make sure no rabbits got away. about 10 minutes later the first rabbit was netted. number 1 in the bag. after about anouther 5 minutes the ferret popped out and didnt want to go back in so we moved to anouther set. the next set was on a mount of mud the dog marked it, so we netted it up and the ferret went in th ferret kept poppin out but then turning round and goin back down anouther 5 minutes went by and out popped a rabbit it missed the net and went strait into a small bush i sliped down the hill into the mud and the rabbit bolted strait back into the hole. after this the rabbit didnt come back out so the next time the ferret came out we put it back in the box. we packed the stuff away and walked towards some woods in here there was only a few rabbits the dog coursed 1 of the rabbits through the woods but the rabbit headed for a set and dissapeared. after this we headed home. 2 rabbits isnt bad for my first day out.
